2013 Open Division

The Open Division is considered the most competitive division of the U.S. Pond Hockey Championships, with 160 teams competing to have their team name inscribed on a piece of pond hockey history: the Golden Shovel. This division is for men and women age 18 and older. Some open division teams carry former NHL legends, Division 1 hockey players or high school greats. Teams hold up to 6 players with 4 players on the ice at a time. Each team is guaranteed four games: two on Friday and two on Saturday. 32 teams will advance to the Golden Shovel round on Sunday to compete in up to 5 grueling games, with only one team emerging triumphant.
